Certified Yoga Instructor

Classes at Zenith:
-Tuesdays at 6:00pm
-Fridays at 6:00pm

Jes is an Ozarks native, aerialist, rock climber, and crazy cat lady. She began her Yoga practice in 2012 in her living room after stumbling upon a photo series of Yogis in beautiful poses and was automatically drawn to the idea of creating art with the body. She decided to enroll in an RYT 200 training focusing on Vinyasa style yoga at Essential Yoga and graduated in 2015. During her training she sustained an injury, limiting her physical practice. During this time she shifted her focus inward to the mental and spiritual aspects of Yoga. Since graduation, she has taken multiple workshops focusing on the deeper, slower, practice of Yin yoga. Jes enjoys the quiet solitude that a Yin practice brings and often mixes those elements into her classes.
